Tindfjöll is a mountain range with many peaks
Tindfjallajökull & Tindfjöll
Tindfjöll is a mountain range with many peaks, the largest of which is simply called ‘The Peak’ and stands at 1251m high. The whole mountain range draws its name from this peak. While Tindfjallajökull is the smallest glacier in the country, it is situated on a giant crater, approximately 7-10 miles in diameter, which was formed from a fissure explosion. Ýmir is the highest peak at 1462m and Ýma is 1448m high. Ýma is just east of Ýmir, but the two peaks are symmetrical with a gap between them. Views are over Mýrdalsjökull, Eyjafjallajökull, Þórsmörk, Markafljótsgljúfur Canyon and Fjallabak.
